Quick 2vs2 PunaBall Tournament #2 - Monday 24 May 2010

Post by TurboSliders.com » Sat May 15, 2010 10:58 am

Introduction
Most of these PunaBall tournaments showed serious organizing problems, such as teams not playing their matches, people disappearing and so on. For this reason we decided to play the whole cup in one night!

Schedule
Monday 24 May 2010 @ 20:50 CET
If you would like to join but the schedule doesn't suit you, please leave your message in this topic.

Servers
Players must connect to drawings server before the cup. Drawings will start at 21:00 CET, so please show up at least 10 minutes earlier than that.
These are the servers that might be used:
- Community Server [ITA]
- Community Server [POL]
- LVP 1
- LVP 2

Rules
1. Max Teams & Players
We will set a maximum of 16 players allowed to join the cup (8 teams). If less teams will show up, one or more teams will advance automatically to next round. Players will decide their partners directly before the cup.

2. Drawings
Drawings will take place in a separate server, the main server, which will remain available during the whole event. Drawings will be random. If 6 or less teams show up, drawings with "<no team> vs <no team>" will be considered invalid, so they will be repeated.

3. Cup Format
The cup will be a direct knockout: quarter-finals, semi-finals, finals (for both 1st and 3rd place). The schedule can be reduced according to the number of teams who effectively show up.

3.1 Quarter-Finals
This round will last 15 minutes without goal-limit. If the match is tied, a "golden goal" match is played (the team who scores first wins).

3.2 Semi-Finals
This round will be composed of two 5-goals games without time-limit (switch sides between games). If the round is tied, a "golden goal" match is played (the team who scores first wins).

3.3 Finals
This round will be a best-of-three 10-goals (+2) games without time-limit (switch sides between games).

4. General Rules
- After each round, new drawings will be made for next round. Players will need to connect to the main server after each games (also for requesting golden-goal match)
- Team field is decided by drawings (e.g. "dede&jan vs tijny&chevron" means that dede&jan will play in team 1)
- The "midfield rule" must be respected (give the ball back if the ball is intercepted illegally), unless the other team doesn't pass the line for more than 10 seconds
- No waiting will be allowed during Quarter-Finals; disconnections and lag will be considered part of the game, so the game is considered valid if goals are scored during those unlucky events
- Waiting will be allowed in Semi-Finals and Finals.

I'm in.

edit: But ehm, I'm not sure if I get how the final round works. Does the game end at 10-9? What happens if a team wins one leg each? In my opinion a best-of-3 would be much nicer.
Also, it seems to me that the semi-final matches are actually shorter than the quarter-finals.

Ok, finals will be best of three.
Semi final will be shorter than quarter if teams aren't balanced, yeah.

hello

Post by Kyna_musti » Sat May 22, 2010 4:51 pm

I'm in, if its ok i'll come about 30 minutes late? But maybe you can get that much players so you don't need me. Jurgen asked me to be with him and i really want to play. Another one is Mango and with him i can play if he want to join there! but that bad timing is just the problem.

We'll hardly start later than 21:15.. next time i'll try to fix the schedule about 1 hour later.

Pardon my forthrightness, but with all due respect to the organizers and participants, this was still utterly f***ed up. I'm sorry to see this, yet it's just the reality. I might explain myself and try to reason, however I'm going to refrain from that for the time being, seeing as people have already called me a 'whiner' and what not. I don't want to go down in the history of TS like that, hence I'm keeping things to my own until someone really and honestly wants to listen, without striking me down forthwith.

Final results available here.

Those who lost semi final forgot that there was the final for third place to be played!!

Smooth and quick cup, probably too quick again for those who lost first round. Maybe we should use some group system, or let people play at least two games.. we'll see for future cups.

About our result, everything went as expected although I was a bit worried at the beginning (things never worked too well with Tijny, but we never played together in serious games until now). We played against good opponents in all rounds: Etmil&siLciR didn't have much luck and we played quite well in that match; Henbak&Kattefarmer were solid players, giving us problems to score the last goal in second game; Chevron&Pornfest showed in second game that they would have had chances to win if we hadn't played well enough.
